Commission establishes RISE High Level Group
The recently established Research, Innovation and Science Policy Experts (RISE) High Level Group has been created by merging three former high-level advisory groups on research and innovation policies in support of the Innovation Union objectives and the completion of the European Research Area (ERIAB, i4g, EFFLA).
The Group shall give direct strategic support to the European Commissioner for research, innovation, and science. It shall focus on how to best use EU research, innovation, and science policy to address the European growth model and to create the conditions for a different type of growth that is smart, economically and environmentally sustainable, and socially inclusive for the EU and associated countries within a globalised world.
